4 Monos (4 Monkeys) is a project started in 2010 by 4 wine savvy friends - Javier García, Laura Robles, David Velasco and David Moreno – in the Gredos mountains, west of Madrid. They work 4 hectares of their own, as well as 10ha with other growers, with parcels located in the villages of San Martín de Valdeiglesias, Cadalso de los Vidrios, and Cenicientos. Their mission is to capture the purity of the local old vine Albillo and Garnacha grapes and the granitic soils of the area - by utilizing organic viticulture and natural winemaking methods – such as wild yeasts and whole grape clusters for fermentation, foot-trodding the grapes for minimal extraction, little sulfur (sometimes none at all), and minimal oak treatment. These wines are weightless and flavorful with lip-smacking granitic minerality and incomparable finesse. You can learn more about them HERE.
